Winner of 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, The Sting stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford as two con men in 1930s Chicago. After a friend is killed by the mob, they try to get even by attempting to pull off the ultimate "sting." No one is to be trusted as the twists unfold, leading up to one of the greatest double-crosses in movie history. The con is on!
A sparkling print, remastered sound (including a DTS track), and a nifty hour-long retrospective makes this 2005 "Legacy Series" edition a solid step-up from the 1998 DVD and its mono soundtrack. Paul Newman and Robert Redford dish about their film 30 years later and lay praise on director George Roy Hill (who died in 2002). The three-part documentary goes deep into the cast for memories from Ray Walston, Charles Durning, and Dimitra Arliss, along with writer David Ward and composer Marvin Hamlisch. Some easy talking points--the Oscars and legendary costume designer Edith Head--are left to the production notes. Also oddly missing are the award-winning producers and references to being the second collaboration of Newman-Redford-Hill after Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (which led to the film's tagline, "Will they get away with it this time?"). Watch to the end of the doc for some brutally honest remarks by Newman on the studio system. --Doug Thomas
